Wine & Spirits Review
Rated 93
De Selle was Marcel Ott's first estate, an imposingly rocky slope of gypsum, red clay, dolomite, gravel and sandstone in Taradeau that he purchased in 1912. The rose it produced in 2018 - a blend of grenache with cinsault, syrah and mourvedre - is more open than the Clos Mireille: De Selle is immediately inviting in its fresh, floral scents of melon and rosemary. The urge to drink it becomes only more immediate when the tangy wine hits the palate, delivering seashell minerality like a jolt of electricity. Bright and energetic, it would make short work of a dozen oysters.

Wine Tasting Notes
Clear, pale pink hue with rose-gold tints. The nose opens with delicate floral notes and aromas of acacia blossom. Chateau de Selle then develops fruity notes of grapefruit, yellow peach and redcurrant, complemented by a subtle hint of almond. The palate is generous with a lovely silky texture and notes of stone fruit and a pleasant citrus freshness (lime and grapefruit). The finish is persistent and brings a delicate touch of spice.
